public land ownership in the Moab, UT area

We’ve got a new release ready — version 5.54. Pretty excited to have a new “Land Ownership” layer in the software. This information can be key to planning adventures — especially new routes. Or for hunting access. The colors on the above map are the standard ones for BLM, USFS, NPS, state, local and private land.

You can download these tiles directly in TopoFusion (using the map type dropdown in the upper right) or go to the Map Menu and select “Blend Land Ownership.” This will add the ownership data to the current map type you are looking at — using the combo blend feature in TopoFusion to blend the two map types together. Super useful!

As one who camps and travels on public land I’m very happy to have this ability. Good to know when you are actually on public land.

There are a number of other updates, including some existing map types being restored or improved.

Update your TF and check out the new version (full list of changes below), or if you are new to TopoFusion, go ahead and try the demo. And as always, let us know what you think, especially if you have a suggestion for a new feature or different way the software should work.
